Hi All,

I have just upgraded to Win 8 and installed office 2010. I've got outlook up and running but most of the previous emails were in folders. On the new system I don't have these emails or folders.

Any ideas how I would port them over? The old outlook is still intact on another hardrive.

Any help would be great :)

If you have the location of the old files, just choose File > Open > Outlook Data File and select it. Optionally, you can copy it or move it to the same location as the new one (May need to be renamed). < If the other hard drive is in the same system. > You can Map a network Drive and Move or Copy the file from it if on another.

Copy it to a thumbdrive, then from Outlook on the new macine do a inport of the pst file.
This will bring all of the data that that is in the old pst file into the new one.
